Middle-earth: Shadow of War Will Let You Bring Over Your Arch Enemy From Previous Game, 80% Off Sale for Mordor On-Going

Remember when Monolith released a title update for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor last month and we didn’t know what it was for? We all assumed it had something to do with carrying over game save data from Shadow of Mordor to the sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Well, it turns out we might be right.

In a press release, Monolith has announced the “Nemesis Forge,” which is an update for Shadow of Mordor that will allow players to bring their nemesis and top follower from Mordor to War.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the Nemesis Forge, a new update for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor that will allow a player to bring their top Nemesis and Follower from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to Middle-earth: Shadow of War when it releases on October 10, 2017. In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players created countless personal stories of revenge through the unique enemies and allies generated by the Nemesis System. With the Nemesis Forge, these stories continue in Middle-earth: Shadow of War by importing a returning player’s arch Nemesis from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, while also identifying a player’s most loyal Orc follower, who can help fight and defend against Sauron’s forces. The Nemesis Forge is now available for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam.
